Can someone knowledgable settle a friendly disagreement? What years were the C-36 and the C-43 AMGs produced and were they both built on 202 platforms? Also, what are their basic differences. Thanks in advance for your input.

Without research, lemme see. Both were only on the 202 chassis for sure. I think the 36 was available 96-97, and the 43 was available 98-00. The 36 is a 3.6L I-6 (104 engine) and made somewhere like 240-250 hp (not sure exact specs). The 43 was a 4.3L V-8 (113 engine) that put out 302 hp. Both rather kickass!

That seems pretty accurate. The C36 I believe made a bit more power than that though. I'm thinking 270-280. Although the 36 had a smaller motor, there really aren't any weight differences due to the materials used in their construction. The 43 actually has a little bit better weight distribution as more of the engines mass is farther back.
